I hardly had to peek at all. There was the invitation that I had longed for. What a step up! An office in the Administration Building. No more classroom. A move to being a Principal with a school of my own. But it was addressed to my co-worker!
All I had to do was “lose” the notice. She would never know. Administration would think she didn’t want the position.
They would look things over and decide I should be the one. I had seniority anyway. The job should be mine!
There was still time to walk away. Wish I had.
